GHC News: Hopper Event: Inspiring Interest in CS
By Rob Knies
“I had the opportunity to meet Katie in Seattle during the Graduate Cohort Program of the Computing Research Association’s Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research [CRA-W],” recounts Johnson-Stempson, principal research director of Education and Scholarly Communication for Microsoft Research Connections. “She was presenting a poster on her research on educational technology and serious games.
“She was discussing her research on how emerging game technologies, specifically ubiquitous and augmented-reality gaming, can be used to facilitate new interaction that promotes learning and skill adoption for players more effectively. I realized that she was the young lady I would like to do research with and have her help us with our education research and gender research.”
